Physical therapy is the art and science of restoring function and maximizing performance. In our quest to bring together all aspects of health and fitness to help transform lives, Pacific Heights Health Club has partnered up with Flow Physical Therapy and FORM Physical Therapy. They are some of the best therapists San Francisco has to offer, and they are now taking appointments at Pacific Heights Health Club.
Their style of physical therapy uses manual therapy, exercise, education, movement analysis, ergonomics and Pilates to help you uncover the source of your injury. They want you to leave feeling great and with the necessary tools to prevent further injury.

Stacee Brown, PT, DPT, ATC
Form Physical Therapy
Stacee has been a practicing Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) since 2004, with a variety of clinical experiences in the outpatient orthopedic setting. Her education includes undergraduate work at the University of Detroit Mercy where she pursued her B.S. in Sports Medicine and became a Certified Athletic Trainer (ATC). She then went on to complete her DPT degree from Duke University.
Initially, she worked as a physical therapist and co-clinic director of a busy outpatient clinic in Northern California. Then in the summer of 2007, she started Form Physical Therapy in San Francisco.
She has treated a variety of outpatient orthopedic problems ranging from post surgical and repetitive strain to high level sports injuries. She has taken numerous continuing education courses in order to stay current on the latest research.
“I passionately believe patients deserve great one-on-one service, with ample time for treatment and rehabilitation. Physical therapy at Flow Studios is truly a different experience, where the patient is treated as a whole and their impairments are addressed through specific manual techniques and appropriate exercise.”
